Great Christmas Gifts for Gardeners
The CobraHead Weeder and Cultivator
I reviewed the CobraHead weeder and cultivator in a blog post several months ago. My favorable review then still stands. This is a fantastic tool, and one that I am glad I own. It has a lightweight handle and a heavy-duty steel head that has a sharp point on it. You can really dig into the soil to get to the roots of weeds and pull them out. It’s a great tool for just $24.95.
The Ultimate Grow Light is a great lamp for seed starting. Just place it on any table top, plug it in, place your seed tray underneath (or a house plant) and voila – instant plant table. It’s sturdy and will last for many years to come. Available from Burpee, America’s premier seed and plant catalog.
Badger Gardening Gloves
This is another product that I personally reviewed and used in the garden. I can’t say enough good things about the Badger Gardening Gloves. I go through gloves like water, ripping out the index finger EVERY week or so. I’m not kidding. That’s how rough I am on gardening gloves. The Badger Gloves lasted for two years without a rip, and now have just a tiny worn spot in the fingertip. They are great gloves that keep your hands dry and clean while providing useful “claw” fingertips for weeding.
Buy a pair from Amazon: Badger Gardening Gloves.
Book: Teaming with Microbes, the Organic Gardener’s Guide to the Soil Food Web
A book about bacteria, fungi and microbes doesn’t sound like a great Christmas present, but trust me, if you have an organic gardener in your life, this will be the perfect gift. It changed how I view my garden, my soil, and my organic gardening practices. Although based in the most recent soil science, the author has a fun, engaging tone that makes this a highly enjoyable books. Recommended as a favorite among the gifts for gardeners.

Plan and Build a Raised Bed Vegetable Garden
Attract Birds to the Garden
Did someone say books? Did you know that I’m the author of two gardening books? Yes, and I hope you like them. Give them as gifts to your favorite gardener this Christmas!
Both available on Amazon and Smashwords.
I hope that these suggestions for gifts for gardeners help you find the perfect gift for Christmas, Mother’s Day or whenever you needs a gift for that special gardener in your life.
